Quite often people who are running a network will never think about the way their system can come under attack. This is the time the company needs to realize the reasons to get the remote infrastructure management. When they know about these reasons, it will be easy to understand why this should be carried out to guarantee the security of the sites. Some of the reasons to get this done is it can help prevent people from stealing information, the site will be off the property grounds if a disaster strikes, this can led to more back up systems, the network will typically be able to survive an attack, security will be easier to maintain, and these off site locations can attempt to break into the system as well.
While many people may have never thought about these being removed from their business physically it can happen. Since this can happen people may need to look at this as preventing that. Then the person does not have to be concerned about losing items.
As many people have learned the hard way a natural occurrence can wipe out the business. However, if some items are off the site it leads to easily getting the business back. Then the individual person does not have to be worried about restarting from scratch.
Backing up data may seem like it is quite a large hassle, but it is actually a great thing to do. With this being done, people do not have to be concerned about the complete failure of a system. Then the person can finally get the work done without worrying about losing everything.
Some individuals do not realize their network can be harmed by a hacker. However, people need to realize this can easily happen and when this does happen it leads to the network being taken down. With this type of system, though, the network is generally protected from hacking.
Providing the essential type of protection can be hard to do at times. This is when some people need to see this type of system will easily provide the protection needed. Then the company does not have to worry about hiring a specialist to handle this type of information for them.
Defending the data can be very difficult to do at times. This is the time some people need to learn about the security measures and tests these places can provide. When they know about this, it is easy to determine this is the best way to find the weakness.
Being able to have a protection for a network can be impossible depending on the size of the peering management company which is providing this service. However, some people need to learn about why the remote infrastructure management can help them out tremendously in getting to have the proper running of their programs. Some of the reasons to get this is it can help prevent direct stealing of information, the site will be found off grounds in the event of a disaster, these can generally have more back ups in place, the networks will generally withstand an attack, the security can be easy to maintain, and the locations doing this can easily attempt to break into the system at any point of time.

Fewer resources and smaller budgets are motivating Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) to transition from an operational executive into a strategic business partner. To excel in today’s evolving and complex business landscape, CISOs must look for a new strategic business development process, such as Business Wargaming. Wargaming will help provide a holistic view of prospective scenarios, create a proactive development plan and an improved reactive strategy.
January 27, 2012, Albuquerque, NM- Today EC-Council releases a new White Paper that introduces an alternative method to conventional CISO practices. As the business landscape becomes more complex and adjusts to stricter policies, increased competition, budgets cuts and limited resources those in the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) position must develop a strategy that will accommodate and meet the needs of the organization. Business wargaming will help the CISO develop a plan where they can foresee future challenges, predict the moves of their competitors and stay ahead of prospective obstacles.
Nitin Kumar, global executive and managing consultant, published a White Paper “Wargaming for CISOs” in EC-Council’s CISO Series of White Papers, he stresses, “To excel in this new business landscape, CISOs need to look at a new strategy development process which will help making decisions realistic at a minimal risk and achieve full strategic and operational alignment.” To read the white paper, please visit: http://goo.gl/XQPFa.
In this White Paper, Nitin Kumar reviews the shortcomings of the conventional CISO strategy and guides the reader through the development of the wargaming strategy by examining wargame types, levels and execution. He suggests ideal circumstances for wargaming and highlights benefits of using this strategy. The White Paper includes tactics that will help the CISO manage the challenges and high demands that come with the role.
Business wargaming adapts the art of simulating moves and counter-moves in a commercial setting. Business war games are a relatively recent development, but they are growing rapidly, and the time has come for CISO organizations to adopt this technique in order to stay ahead of the game.
The CISO position has been around for less than a decade. In that time it has evolved dramatically. Neira Jones, head of payment security for Barclaycard, said in the article “How the Role of the CISO Must Evolve to Balance Risk and Business”, due to the changing business landscape, “The CISO needs to evolve from an isolated subject matter expert and analyst to a trusted advisor on how technology can improve business; to an integrated business thinker, facilitator, leader, evangelist and educator.”
Business Wargaming will help executives develop plans that meet their strategic goals, create competitive advantage, and elevate the pressure felt by the complex and ever-changing nature of today’s business landscape.
